A catch-all e-mailbox is one that gathers all the messages sent to inactive email addresses. For instance, if your email address is info@domain.com, but somebody mistypes it and sends an email message to inof@domain.com, it will still be received in the catch-all mailbox that you have created. Only one single mailbox per domain can have this feature activated and thus you will never miss messages because the other side has an outdated address or has made a spelling mistake. The downside of creating a catch-all mailbox is that you may begin receiving lots of spam messages, but this issue can be resolved by using anti-spam protection software. It’s also crucial to remember that a mailbox with an activated catch-all functionality cannot forward incoming email messages to a 3rd-party address.

Catch-all Emails in Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux hosting with our company and you wish to enable the catch-all functionality for a specific email mailbox that you’ve got in the web hosting account, it’ll take literally just one single mouse click in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia Control Panel to achieve this. A catch-all button is available next to each and every email address that you have created under any domain hosted in your account. You can choose one single address per domain name by clicking on the corresponding button. This will enable the feature right away, so all email messages sent to mistyped email addresses will be delivered there. Clicking the button once more will disable the catch-all feature. If you have active email forwarding, our system will exhibit a warning notice and you won’t be able to activate the catch-all feature unless you remove the forwarding or you can simply pick some other mailbox to be the catch-all one.

Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Servers

A catch-all email address can be created with a few mouse clicks in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated server with our company. The hosting account will be managed via our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel and you’ll be able to set up mailboxes under any domain hosted here. To enable the catch-all feature for a specific mailbox, you’ll have to click the symbol with the same name, which will be next to each email address. Deactivating this option can be done in the exact same manner and will not require more than a click either. If the catch-all functionality has already been activated for a given domain name, you will receive a warning alert. The same is valid if the mailbox that you want to be a catch-all one has email forwarding enabled, as our system will never deactivate or alter any feature automatically.
